Ingredients

  • 500 g ground turkey
  • 1 tsp Chinese 5 spice
  • 1 Tbsp sesame oil
  • 1 Tbsp Peanut butter smooth
  • 2 Tbsp soy sauce
  • 1/2 tsp fish sauce
  • 1 Tbsp hoisin

Instructions

  • Instructions
  • In a medium frying pan over a medium heat add the sesame oil.
  • Add the turkey and the five spice and sauté until cooked and slightly golden.
  • Meanwhile in a medium bowl mix the remaining ingredients except the lettuce.
  • I don’t add any extra salt to the sauce as it’s usually perfectly seasoned due to the soy and peanut butter.
  • Whisk until smooth. Taste and adjust to your taste. Like more hoisin or more soy, or spice etc.
  • Pour half of the sauce to the turkey and cook for a further 2 minutes.
  • Fill the lettuce cups with the turkey mix.
  • Drizzle with the rest of the sauce and top with some crushed peanuts, chopped spring onions and some red chillies if you like super spicy.
